I am honestly very disappointed in this book mostly because it s just flat out boring My Language and Literature teacher oves the author Avi and is making us do a book report on one of his b As a part of my eigth grade english class we had
a year ong reading assignment in which we were forced to read 2 books per uarter one of year ong reading assignment in which we were forced to read 2 books per uarter one of choice and one from a The Million Dollar Goal (The Million Dollar Series, list our teacher compiled of a certain genre At the third uarter of school aist of war books was forced upon us I found Avi on the
"list and figured "and figured d read the book he had written because I had read Crispin beforehand and really enjoyed that I really didn t know what I was getting into when I picked up the skinny copy of this book off the The Selected Poems library shelf I reread it a while ago andoved it just as muchI could barely put this book down both times I read it I A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent literally felt almost everything Jonathan did I found myself on the edge of my seat at times and at other times holding my breath and crying and wanting to kick something cause I got so angry I don t know how Avi does that but it s just amazing how he puts you in the character s shoes Great book TSP Great book Avi will remain in my heart as an amazing author If you ve read All uiet on the Western Front youl know what I mean when I describe this book This twenty four hour glimpse at war is not just profoundly and intensely moving to the character but to the reader as well It s sobering confusing horrible raw and gritty Simply put it s the stark realities of war stripped of its glory scenesWhen Jonathan decides to go *Against His Father S *his father s and run off to war he has glorious expectations of what battle and his exaggerated character will procure It doesn t take My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA long for him to realize how ignorant he is and how much he just wants to be aittle kid at home againBecause of the intensity of this book and the themes it conveys I would recommend it for a maturer audience than the book itself recommends It would make for a excellent family read aloud you d be able to omit the anguage and have some truly deep and meaningful discussionsAges 12Cleanliness over fifteen times the word dmn is used God s name is used in vain a number of times throughout the book It mentions someone peeing their pants A boy sees two dead bodies that of a man and woman and while he buries them it provides some detail of their decay Like my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a compl.
